I notice Intelligent Octopus is now offered for Jaguar, anyone tried it yet?

Not sure it’s for me as I have solar panels and use a Zappi. Very good price though.

Price is the same as Octopus Go, with longer hours but they do need to link up online with the car and the charger.

I’d rather do Octopus Go on balance I think, but Intelligent offers a much longer off peak, and occasional off peaks during the day.

As far as I can see it’s either a compatible car (Jaguar is one of only 3 there) or a compatible charger - Zappi is not there, so I would need to do some manual adjustment to use the excess solar for the car.

I’m using Intelligent. The higher rate unit price is more expensive than Go but the off peak is longer at 6 hours. The daily charge is also slightly higher.
It’s clever but doesn’t add benefit over Go to my usage profile

So I looked at the Go and Intelligent tariffs available to me as a new customer. Literally the only difference was the off peak period (4 vs 6). All other charges were the same - bar the need to have a Tesla or JLR. Signed up and tested the ipace - works fine. Worse case scenario I leave smart charging off and just maximise the 6 hour off-peak and any solar excess available :)

Interesting. I guess as I am an existing customer my Go rate was (slightly) discounted. If both rates are exactly the same, it’s a bit of a no brainier
